Qualifications Summary: 

I am a student at Western Sydney University Parramatta campus, studying undergraduate Bachelor of Communications and Information Technology (Health Information Management). I am currently looking for a job working as a clinical coder. I have not done any formal studies learning Clinical Coding but I am very interested in getting my foot in the work force as a clinical coder.

I have 23 years of experience as a clinical dental nurse, generally working alongside the dentist assisting with all the general procedures, charting of teeth, sterilisation of instruments. The last 4 years, I have also been filling in the role as Front Desk Coordinator, managing the administration side, arranging appointments and responsible for documenting treatment procedures and patients records.

Brief Summary of Experience: 

23 years working in the surgery as a clinical dental nurse, charting patients' teeth. 4 years as a Front Desk Coordinator, using OASIS software I had to enter patients data on computer, from their treatments, x-ray images, to their clinical reports/notes from general dentist and multi-disciplinary teams. In the early 1990s, I also worked as a part-time Ward Assistant.

Additional Information: 

In March 2017 I will be enrolling for the Clinical Coder course Online. As I am very keen into getting into Clinical coding, I am even contemplating on just concentrating on studying this course and postponing the undergraduate degree. Once I am competent and working as a Clinical Coder, then I will take up Health information Management again, on a part-time basis.
